Football player Rúben Semedo criticizes Portuguese lawyer for calling Cabo Verdeans “gentalha”

Praia, Jan 8 (Inforpress) – Portuguese-Cabo Verdean football player Rúben Semedo criticized Portuguese lawyer Suzana Garcia for calling the Cabo Verdean people “gentalha” when commenting on the case of the death of young Luís Giovani Rodrigues in a program from the Portuguese TV station TVI.

The football player used his Instagram to speak against the word of the Portuguese lawyer, who considered that Giovani’s case was approached in the media of her country.

“First, we didn’t talk hysterically about how this scum wanted to talk…. Second, the festivities were happening when we heard about it,” said the lawyer. Suzana Garcia’s statements caused anger and indignation on the social networks on the part of the Cabo Verdeans, above all, and Reuben Semedo was not silent.

“A person with her literary faculties should have a little more ethics and respect, but I don’t reproach her either because it’s my understanding that the word respect doesn’t exist in her dictionary! Await your response and “try” to at least respect the people  who are in mourning and have lost a loved one,” wrote Ruben Semedo.
